Baby Shower and Preggy Pics

Oh, what a week so far....I have felt absolutely HORRIBLE! Thank you Mr. Pollen, but you were not invited to my house! We have about 2 billion Bradford Pear Trees in our neighborhood. You have to drive through two rows on them to get into our neighborhood, and I think driving through tear gas would feel the same. This pollen attack has prevented me from thanking my amazing friends for my very first baby shower. It was so weird to think all these baby things were for me, well Jack. Even the enormous belly has not fixed the idea in my head. But Tricia, Amanda, Katelyn E. soon to be Katelyn B., Lindsey, Mims, Heather, and Katelyn W. set me and Jack up in style! He got some precious things! I can't wait to play dress up with him. I always hated Barbies, but I loved to dress my Cabbage Patches. Now I will have my very own Cabbage Patch! My friends were so sweet to plan this day for me, and it was extra special to share it with my mom, my grandmother, my Aunt Judy, my sweet mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law Katelyn who was also a hostess. Jack is very loved already and his momma feels the same way! Thank you friends!!! Somehow I also managed to talk Travis into taking some maternity pics, and I just happen to be BFF with the best photographer EVER!! Thanks Tricia for making my preggo-pale self look pretty good....well as good as I can at this point. We were just missing Maggie. Maybe next time. Thanks Tricia....I can't wait for you to take pics of him on the outside! So here are a few pics from the big day.

Memer, Mimi, me, and JuJu

Happy Easter!
